Default Valve guide lube.

Getting ready to reassemble my new heads after gasket port matching, polishing the combustion chambers and the exhaust ports and lapping the valves for a proper seat . The manual that I have says put white molybdenum - disulphide grease on the valve stems . The best I can find on this grease it seems to be an antiseize of some kind. Is this the best to use or is there something better to use .

You are overthinking this.
I use assembly lube if I have some.
I have also used plain old wheelbearing grease
heuristic paradigm

^^ There you go. In the olden days wheel bearing grease was the number one choice when assembling an engine. And likely in a repackaged form, still is.
